    We have our quilting machine for sale. It is 12 feet long with a converted Singer Industrial sewing machine on it. This is a hand made quilting machine made by A-1 Quilting just outside Springfield, MO. I believe it was made in the late 1970's. Nothing fancy. Uses pantograph patterns plus free motion quilting.

    These pictures are where it was set up in our spare bedroom. We are selling it because we are upgrading to a newer long arm machine, and both will not fit in our home.
    PM me with e-mail address for details of price and what is included. Local delivery within 30 miles, or you pick up.

    BUMP!

    No replies in a week. I guess no one is interested.

    This is a good machine for someone wanting to get started in machine quilting.

    Maybe you'd be better off advertising it locally. Maybe Craigslist? We don't have many quilters on this board compared to tapping into a local source.

    Belfrybat,

    I just thought I would offer it here, as the quilting forum I subscribe to does NOT allow "For Sale" threads. Too bad for them, as I was ready to offer quite a deal to those members.

    IF there is anyone here interested, PM me for details and price. Special discount for HST members.

    Do you belong to the Quilting Board? They have a member for sale/purchase section. I think a new member has to have several posts before they can advertise there, but it's a large board. I've sold several sewing machines over there. http://www.quiltingboard.com/

    Belfrybat,

    I went to Quiltingboard, and before I can post for sale I have to be a member for at least 90 days and have at least 10 threads started. Too much time and involvement for me.

    Offer still stands for HT members. PM or e-mail me for details and a good price on this tough, dependable machine.

    suejustice,

    There is no real "manual" for this machine, but we do have the instruction pamphlet the previous owner gave us. It shows how to thread the machine and how to install the needle. We also have the DVD from the machine builder that shows how to adjust the timing. Also included is an electric bobbin winder, extra needles and bobbins.

    We are located in Shell Knob Missouri, about 65 miles Southwest of Springfield and about 75 miles Southeast of Joplin. We are on Table Rock Lake about 10 miles North of the Arkansas state line.

    In case you are not able to scroll up to my original post, I have attached the pictures of it with one of our quilts on it. Please e-mail me at silentkingfisher42@outlook.com with any other questions or comments.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Dave

    BUMP: Guess nobody is interested yet. Offer still stands for any and all interested. E-mail me at above address with any and all questions. I would like to see this go to a new home and get put to use.

    MoBookorm1957,
    Maybe you could talk Hubby, Better Half, or Kids to build you an additional room to put it in? (Yes, I'm being a smart a##.)

    Just being nosey, where are you located from Shell Knob? If not too far, I could deliver and set up.

    Well.... I live in a one bedroom apartment and have the Bailey and frame in the area that would have been my dining room. The dining table is my cutting table. To put it simply, I live in a quilting studio! :D

    Essentially I live in 2 bedroom apartment, with a pup named Strawberry.
    The second bedroom is my sewing room,Strawberry's room and have to make room for first grandchild room.
    I use my kitchen table as my cutting table too.
    Going to modify desk that I have in sewing room as new cutting table. Love the big deep drawers on it, just not the top..

    MoBookworm1957,
    It sounds like you have it all together there. If you know of someone looking to get started in this, please forward the pictures and information to them. If within a reasonable distance from us, I can arrange to deliver and set up. E-mail me, or reply here with any question or comments.

    Thanks Dave,
    I will pass the pictures and information along.
    Have to clean out closet to put cutting table in there.
    Then will have room for crib(when I find one I like) where the cutting table was.
    Still have to change out table top, I mean really who puts gardening timbers on top of a desk.
    Going with butcher block, routering out place for yard stick so that it will be flush with top.
    Good thing my parents taught 3 girls and 1 boys carpentery skills,cooking,laundry etc.
    It would also help if I would quit collecting old toys.

    How much does something like this cost? Just curious.
